    Wills. Wills Family Farming-Future Farmers handling the horses.
    From Eleanor Wills Love History: At a very young age the boys, Ronald, Max and Wilford, started helping my father in the field with the horses and learned to drive them as feed them and the cows and pings. We girls soon started feeding the chickens. The barnyard was on the far side of the barn with its horse rough for watering the animals. In the summer Pap would occasionally fill it with fresh water so we could enjoy a swimming pool. To the right of the barn was the pig pens. We were know as the "Wills Elephant Ranch" because of the advertising sign on the side of the barn.

Took the old Dodge.Note about Dry Falls: no longer carries water, but is the remnant of what was once the largest waterfall known to have existed on earth. Viewing the 3.5 miles of sheer cliffs that drop 400 feet, it is easy to imagine the roar of water pouring over them. (Niagara Falls by comparison, is one mile wide with a drop of 165 feet). Near present day Coulee City.

She had the uterus removed 20 years before and felt that her prayers had been answered in her being spared to see her children were all grown. Her biggest concern was Grandpa but she said she thought he would probably marry again, which he never did for 28 long years. He really missed her. It was as she said "those of you left here grieve my passing but so many whom I love and whom I have been away from for so long are on the other side and I am anxious to see them again." I will always be grateful to your Aunt Anne Mae and Aunt Mary for giving their time and service to them at this time.
